About keith bibby

WHAT DO I OFFER ? - Primarily what you should expect or hope for in a competent professional therapist ! ( See the 3 Short Section below )

1. I have a long and wide ranging experience of human problems in a variety of settings - both as a therapist and in my behavioural science research and consultancy careers.
No matter how confusing or upsetting your problem - your feelings of anger, hurt or shame about it - I've probably met something similar before. I revel in a challenge and I'm here to help you - not to judge.

2. A thoughtful and well-structured approach is essential. I have a calm and accepting presence and a shrewd analytical mind. Although I have a very wide repertoire of helpful tools and techniques to assist you - I communicate very clearly and without jargon - aiming to reassure you quickly that I am getting a proper grasp on things and that we are proceeding effectively.
On the other hand - apart from providing necessary support to enable you to cope - I only take initiatives with a problem when we have clarified the underlying processes sufficiently. Most people find great reassurance in being helped in the initial stages to discover what really is going on.

3. When it comes to remedies and solutions - Ericksonian work is renowned for the ingenuity of its best practitioners. It is not a simple-minded band-aid approach involving the application of standard procedures . Instead we work together to evolve new and effective strategies. These are tailor-made for YOU to either eradicate your difficulties or to transform your ability to handle them in easy ways which fit in with your own natural qualities.
KEITH BIBBY Over 30yrs experience - Clapham Common practice & research in behavioural science, brief & long term Ericksonian psychotherapy & hypnotherapy with individuals, couples counselling and children.

keith bibby Q&A

What do you love most about your job?

...... Working with clients is a great privilege.
...... We are guardians of a special space invested with an extraordinary degree of freedom and honesty where we deal with very real issues in people's personal lives. We are trusted with insights and private thoughts and feelings which they have often been unable to reveal to any other person.
...... We are permitted to cooperate in solving their difficulties. Our general objective is to enable them to cope with life better - improving attitudes to their circumstances, feelings about themselves or others, or their mental or physical capacity to handle situations more competently and effectively.
...... You never know what's coming. It's endlessly fascinating. Problems vary greatly in difficulty and complexity. Sometimes the most apparently commonplace problem hides more profound difficulties - often a bit of 'sideways thinking' - very characteristic of this approach - can find a way forward with an apparently overwhelming challenge.
...... Sometimes it's a process of systematically building awareness and skills - often with the aid of hypnotic work - until the client has an adequate repertoire to manage and continue for themselves.
On other occasions people need help to identify, face and cope with realities which they find disturbing or might rather avoid - but whose avoidance is restricting and damaging their lives or the lives of those around them.
...... Because of the complexity of the processes involved - and probably because of my capacity to hold a stable framework through stressful exchanges - helping couples to resolve their difficulties is something I find particularly engaging and rewarding.
The work can be deeply affecting and demanding. Sympathetic support, energy and resourcefulness are required to cope with dark moods and stretched emotions, to navigate through disillusion or despair and get things shipshape and back on course.
...... Ericksonian work is very special in this respect. Though totally relaxed in style, every moment has potential to influence the process. Ericksonians are very aware of the subtlety of language and gesture which can either support and develop transformative change or ignorantly extinguish some little flame of possible insight or inspiration. So profound is this perspective that even HM Government have become aware of some of the lower foothills of this work and for over a decade have deployed a special unit to develop the use of 'nudge politics ' to apply some of these strategies in the public domain.
( You might like to read J Haley ' My voice will go with you ' for anecdotal insights into the foundations of Milton Erickson's discoveries and approach. Also David Halpern ' Inside the nudge unit ; how small changes can make a big difference '.)
...... Although we operate in a much more modest framework - it is no less profound. Every time I go into my practice room and sit in that special space - with that alive 'switched on feeling ' - waiting for the doorbell to ring - I know that - no matter how great or small - something special is going to happen.
